Ex-councillor jailed for child porn offences

SHAMED former Wycombe district councillor Bob Bate has been jailed today for three years after confessing to possessing thousands of pornographic images of children and animals.

His Honour Judge Simon Davis, sitting at Amersham Law Courts, today described the images as “graphic, sordid and damaging”.

He told Bate, 62: “These are the worst images I have ever seen. I am sorry, I have never said that before. Both at the bar and the bench I have had the misfortune to be involved in this work.

The former Hazlemere Parish Council chairman, a Tory, who was living in Dudley after his arrest, admitted to 17 counts of making indecent photos of children last month.

My comment: At least he got jail time but it goes to show many councillors are not the upright citizens many people believe them to be.
